Gus Goes Fishin’ Slot Features

Fish Prize Collection

In addition to the standard pay symbols, the game features a shoal of fishy icons. Small Green Fish contain prizes of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, or 10x. Large Fish come with an attached Mini 25x, Major 50x, or Mega 100x jackpot. Any time a fish symbol arrives at the same time as a Gus Collect Symbol, Gus will kindly reel in the Fish Prizes and add them to your balance. Fish prizes are collected by all Gus Collect Symbols in view. Gus Collect symbols also act as Wilds and will substitute for all standard symbols to help create winning combinations.


The base game is livened up still further by the following three random Modifiers:

  • Reel Em’ In: On any spin with one or more Fish symbols but no Collect symbol, Gus may reel in the prizes from his position to the left of the reels.
  • Big Catch: On any winning spin, Gus may award a multiplier of x2, x3, or x5 to the total winnings.
  • Bonus Boost: If two or more Scatters appear, Gus may add another Scatter to the reels to trigger or improve your bonus round.

Deep Spins Bonus Round

If three, four, or five Boat Scatters sail into view on the same spin, you will be handed eight, 10, or 12 free spins.

Free Spins take place on the same layout as the base game but come with an extra Fish Symbol and two Bonus Trails:

  • Sticky Golden Fish: Contains a prize of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x, or 10x, but will remain locked in place on every spin and can be collected multiple times.
  • Multiplier Trail: During the round, every collected Fish is added to the Multiplier Bonus Trail, with three Multiplier boosts available:
  • Eight Fish: 2x Multiplier to Fish Collect Prizes.
  • 16 Fish: 5x Multiplier to Fish Collect Prizes.
  • 24 Fish: 10x Multiplier to Fish Collect Prizes.
  • Extra Spins Trail: All Gus Collect Symbols are added to the Extra Spins Bonus Trail, which awards Extra Spins as follows:
  • Five Gus Collect Symbols: +4 spins.
  • 10 Gus Collect Symbols: +4 spins.
  • 15 Gus Collect Symbols: +4 spins.

Side Bet and Bonus Buy

Selecting the Gold Coin Side Bet option from the left of the reels will increase the cost per spin by 50% but boosts your chances of triggering Modifiers and the Free Spins Bonus. The game doesn’t specify how much your chances increase, which is a shame.

For those who don’t want to wait for their free spins ship to sail in, two Bonus Buy options are available:

  • Deep Spins Bonus Buy: Costs 60x the total bet and awards a random 3, 4, or 5 Scatter Bonus.
  • Golden Deep Spins Bonus Buy: Costs 200x the total bet and awards a 5 Scatter Bonus with a guaranteed Golden Sticky Fish Symbol.
  • Note that the Side Bet and Bonus Buy options are only available in eligible jurisdictions and not in the UK.
Our Verdict: An excellent Free Spins Bonus which offers everything you would hope for from a collection-based fishing game. Splitting the traditional Bonus Trail in two adds an interesting twist, and the round successfully builds anticipation as those Fish and Collect symbols flop onto the reels.

Gus Goes Fishin’ Slot Graphics & Audio


The beautiful blue skies and beach of the backdrop straddle the sweet spot between cartoonish and realism, with the underwater setting of the bonus round equally impressive. The game symbols fall firmly into the cartoonish category and come with delightful animations when involved in a win – the boogying starfish, in particular, bringing joy to the reels.

The audio team have also done a great job interpreting the tropical theme with the chirpy calypso-style soundtrack. Tinny drums and xylophones combine with soothing strings and bubbling water effects to create a thoroughly chilled-out experience. The reel effects merge seamlessly with the ambient noise, as each reel arrives with a bubble pop and gentle bells and splashes greet the arrival of special symbols.

Our Verdict: You can always count on Gus to bring a lot of fun to the reels and this game delivers in spades. The beautiful graphics, animations, and soundtrack combine to create a fun, friendly, and relaxing vibe.
